The electrician has been here again all day today and - as yesterday - each time did he a job he found a dozen other jobs needing doing. This afternoon I had to have some one come to fit an isolation switch, and he also found that a stop tap had a leak - and so it goes on. He is not coming tomorrow as he is waiting for some parts and they will not be here until next week. Tess will be mighty pleased. She is a nervous wreck and, as I write this she is laid across my feet = shivering.
When he did various jobs there were pops and bangs and she did not like them. She enjoyed her usual walk out with PetPals (with a golden labrador this time) but she has always been sensitive to noise and the older she gets and worse it becomes. I am tempted to let her sleep in my bedroom tonight but the trouble is that it creates a precedent. She has always slept in her bed and hopefully she will feel secure in it.
